Food-stamp fraud leads to arrests in Florida

There are many times when people do things that are wrong but think they won't get caught. One of those things is selling or using food stamps in a way that is against federal law. For example, you aren't legally allowed to sell your food stamps to others and shouldn't be able to purchase certain items with them.

What should you know about felony charges?

If you're charged with a felony, there are a few things you need to know. First, you have to understand what degree the felony is. Second, you need to know exactly which felony you face. Finally, you need to know if there are any good defenses that you should know about for the alleged criminal act.

Double jeopardy protections prevent multiple trials against you

Double jeopardy protection is an important protection for people accused of crimes. This protection prevents you from facing trial twice for the same or similar charges based on the same facts following a conviction or acquittal. This right is given to individuals in the Fifth Amendment of the United States.

What are some felonies in Florida?

There are many felony crimes in Florida. Some are relatively straightforward, while others are obscure and unusual. To avoid a felony charge, it's a good idea to know what some felonies are so you can avoid them. For example, Did you know that it's a third-degree felony to poach an alligator in Florida? You should think twice about shooting that lizard if it winds up on your property.

Diversion programs help prevent criminal records

If you get into trouble with the law, you probably think immediately that you'll go to trial and face a penalty. The court system is a little more complicated than that, and there are now many diversion programs you may be able to use to avoid a criminal record or to reduce the penalties against you.
